IU Report Finds Trouble With Trampolines

first_imgOne trampoline-related injury is reported per week at Margaret Mary Health.A recent IU School of Medicine survey found that home trampoline accidents accounted for nearly 289,000 emergency room visits nationwide for broken bones between 2002 and 2011.The number rises to more than 1 million visits when factoring in all accidents, not just fractures.Kathy Miley is a nurse practitioner in the emergency room at Margaret Mary Health. She also spends quite a bit of time traveling for work and says it is an issue she has seen firsthand.She said, “We are definitely seeing them. Not so much here in Batesville, but I see them a lot.”Miley estimated about one trampoline-related emergency room visit in Batesville per week and it is usually a broken bone, sprain or dislocation.“Usually if they fall on the trampoline it is going to be a fracture. Most of the time when they come in the ER and they have had a trampoline accident something is broke, either a wrist or a leg or something,” Miley said.She recalled a trampoline accident that had a tragic result. While working in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a juvenile got his head stuck between springs and fractured his neck and died.Most trampoline accidents occur when multiple people are jumping on the mat, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Health officials advise only one child should be allowed on the trampoline at a given time, limiting kids from being tossed around.Some other tips offered include verifying the trampoline is on level ground, use a safety net, and institute adult supervision.The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons say trampoline use should be off limits to children younger than age 6.last_img read more

Gabriela Knutson’s career ends with 1st round loss in NCAA Individual Championships

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Gabriela Knutson took 15 measured steps to the net where Stacey Fung was already waiting. Syracuse’s only NCAA singles tournament participant shook hands with Fung, bypassed the chair umpire and high-fived Shelley George softly — all for the last time. Syracuse’s stalwart for the last four years was eliminated. An unseeded Fung dominated Knutson from start to finish, cruising to a 6-2, 6-2 victory in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Singles Championship on Monday morning. Knutson lost her final four career matches, all in straight sets. She finished the year 16-11 in singles overall, the second fewest number of wins in her four years at SU.There were flashes throughout the first set of what the Czech senior has done all season at the first singles spot for Syracuse. Her flat groundstrokes matched with a deft touch at the net propelled her to as high as No. 13 in the ITA rankings. She had numerous ranked wins this year, including two against top-five opponents. Her backhand power was unmatched on Monday by Fung, and her forehands kept the Washington senior moving laterally until she no longer could chase down each ball.All too often, those moments were accompanied by unforced errors preventing Knutson from developing a steady rhythm. Her return game struggled as she sent forehand after forehand careening into the net, passed the baseline, or wide of the singles line. With Fung serving for the match, Knutson gifted three unforced errors for three match points. In all three rallies, Knutson was the aggressor and in control. But at crucial moments, like on a backhand approach shot, she couldn’t convert.Her body language, normally fiery, was muted. After a backhand winner, a loud “Come on” carried across the six courts at the USTA National Campus. It had come from two courts beside where Knutson was playing. Even after a forehand winner, Knutson gestured with her arms in front of her, speaking to herself instead of celebrating the point.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe final rally lasted just three shots. Knutson sent another forehand into the net, and in just over an hour, Fung ended the career of Syracuse’s first singles All-American since 1995. Knutson packed her bags and slung it over her right shoulder as she followed Fung off the court.
